Pelicans are aplenty at the Al Areen Wildlife Park in Bahrain and mix freely with the hundreds of visitors. However, they do not like being teased and provoked and can become extremely aggressive. These three shots show just that. While the obviously gentle birds are seen going about their business in two of the pictures (above and bottom), in the third (top), a little child who came too close and tried to heckle it, got a rude welcome. Fortunately her parents and others, who were at hand, intervened and saved the situation.
